A Guy Found A Scared Kitten Under A Truck And Just Couldn’t Say No To Her

When this good guy saw a scared kitten clinging to a truck near his office, he just couldn’t leave her like that. Turns out, “the mama kitty ran off… and ditched the kitten. No other kittens could be found,” – redditor JustAnotherGoodGuy explained.

Immediately after finding the kitty, the man sent the picture to his wife asking “can I bring it home?” His wife’s reaction? “Who could say no to that face?” – she said.

The first thing they did was take her to the vet. “That’s how we found she’s a she. Got shots, the whole new kitten package.  She was only 4-5 weeks old when found.”

“[Axel] has made herself right at home with our 19 year old cat and 2 year old dog. She’s safe, sound, warm, and… loved,” – the couple explained.

More info: JustAnotherGoodGuy (h/t)

Aww... she is so cute! Did you name her Axel because you found her under a car?

Yes. Their friend suggested it after seeing the photo, and the couple liked it. The spelling is intentionally incorrect (not axle) as they liked this spelling better.

She could have been riding/ hiding on the truck in the engine compartment. It happened to my kitty and she rolled off the car she was hiding in on a curve. We rescued her from her tumble. She has been with us 16 years now

Possible story for mom ditching the kitty: They were strays for a long time and then mom has an ideia and says to kitty "You're too good for this kind of life, you don't deserved this!! :( You deserve much better!! This man seems really nice, so I'll leave you under the truck and then I will have to go :( don't forget to look cute and scared at the same time. I love you!!"

Mama cats do not spend 24/7 with their kittens! Just b/c you find a kitten, does not mean it has been abandoned by its mother! Put it somewhere safe where the mother can find it and if it doesn't come back, then adopt it.

Axel is also a Scandinavian given name, usually masculine. But hey! Your Axel is cuter than the historical Axels. Many happy years to ya!

I just love the part where they didn't find out that the kitten was a female until they took her to the vet :). Just hold her belly-up. It's pretty easy :)

We found a kitten the exact same way in November of 2014! Except the truck was at a stop light in an intersection and we were right behind it!! My husband spotted the wee tabby kitten who was probably only 4 weeks old, and pointed her out to me. It was early morning and we have NO idea how she got there but she was on the inside of the 4X4 trucks back tire and my husband jumped out of the car when I shrieked upon seeing the kitten in such a perilous place. Here is a photo I snapped of her the next day all bathed and fluffy :) and yes we still have her. :) IMG_5082-5...d3f6b9.jpg IMG_5082-583f9b5d3f6b9.jpg

Maybe something happened to the Mother. They don't usually abandon their kittens. Because there were no litter mates with her, seems like something was up. If Mom left to hunt, she would have left all her kits together.

How do you know that "the mama kitty ran off… and ditched the kitten"? I find it difficult to believe. A mother cat would risk her live for her baby.
